Frank Turcotte is Colborne Legion Volunteer of the Year

Frank Turcotte was named Volunteer of the Year at the annual Honours and Awards ceremony at Colborne Royal Canadian Legion Branch 187 Apr. 14. We had to wait to announce the award because Frank was on a road trip with our Legion Fantastic Finn, Elmer Servio.
The award, created four years ago, is presented to a person who, regardless of membership status, has worked hard on behalf of the branch and, in so doing, has upheld the principles of service for the good of the organization. Branch President Patti May makes the selection.
Previous winners have been Lou Micieli, Judith Howe and Jane Malkin.
